Teachers Teaching Teachers #99 – From elgg to Drupal? – 04.09.08

For this webcast, we invited Bill
Fitzgerald, Dave Cormier and Gail Desler to talk about social
networking and what platforms make sense right now. Of course behind
all of this talk about Drupal and Edublogs were questions that we are
asking about about how we in the, ah… Teachers Teaching Teachers,
Youth Voices, Personal Learning Space, Youth Twitter … group of
teachers might want to continue
working together … and how the software decisions we need to make
this Spring can support our hopes and plans.

We had an excellent conversation with Bill Fitzgerald, from FunnyMonkey.com, OpenAcademic.org and the brand spankin new DrupalEd Distribution on how Drupal fits into education. The goal of the show was to create a cookbook for a conference site with Drupal — we got to it in the last 10 minutes! Thanks to Bill for his time and the excellent conversation.
